Please do not copy and do not post elsewhere.
Do not translate or script.
This tutorial is written as if you have a general knowledge on how to use the program.

***What you'll need***
Program of Choice.
I am using Photoshop CS5
But, if you know your tools you can use any program of choice

Tube of choice.
I am using the artwork of Ismael Rac
You must purchase a license to use his tubes and can do so HERE

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using “Autumn Gold” by Chichi Designz
You can find this for purchase HERE

Mask of Choice
Mask128 by Weescotslass Creations

Additional Filters Needed
Vanderlee – Unplugged-X
Eye Candy – Gradient Glow

~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Start a new canvas
600px by 600px
Flood fill with white.

Open BranchFrame1
Add to your canvas
Resize down to 70%
Rotate 46 degrees
Add a drop shadow

Open Paper13
Add to your canvas just below the frame
Use the magic wand to select inside the frame I got the big pieces just around the frame as well
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete
Duplicate this layer
Filer → Vanderlee → Unglugged-X → Pattern Offset
Change the blend mode to soft light

Open Paper2
Add to your canvas just above the white background layer
Apply the layer mask here

Add the tube to the canvas
I recolored the clothing to a color I'd chosen from the paper I used as the background for the frame to match with the kit really well.
Resize and reposition to your liking
Have this first tube above the paper frame background but below the frame
Erase any of the tube that is extending beyond the frame at the bottom
Duplicate this layer
Move it above the frame this time
Erase any of the tube that is over the frame
Duplicate this layer
On the top one
Filer → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to soft light
On the bottom tube
Add a drop shadow

Add your tube between the background paper layers
Resize and reposition to your liking
I flipped a couple horizontally
Merge the layers
Erase any of the tube that's outside the frame
Change the blend mode to luminosity
Lower the Opacity to 30%

Now add which elements you'd like
I used the following from the bottom layer up with a drop shadow unless stated:

LeavesBrush (no drop shadow)
Grass (no drop shadow)
Branch 1
FairyDust (no drop shadow)
Words (no drop shadow, blend mode change to overlay)
WordArt (I used eye candy – gradient glow here to add a bit to the words)
Butterflies (just one of them)
Butterflies (just one of them)
GlowSparkle (no drop shadow)

Add your name

Image → Trim
Top left pixel color all boxes checked

Resize if you'd like to

****Most Important****
Add your copy right information

If you're happy with you're result save to your liking and you're done!
